Research and Development

UCL runs projects deeply rooted in practice, yet founded on a solid theoretical basis, delivering information and research results for the benefit of the welfare society of the future.

This Centre is an integral part of the Faculty of Education and Social Sciences at UCL, and includes the Centre for Applied School Research and a number of other research and development projects.

Applied Welfare Research does research and contributes knowledge about the opportunities and challenges presented by the welfare society, in terms of the general population, the professions and welfare institutions.

The knowledge centre contributes to and provides knowledge for the development and improvement of the Health Service and to the services offered by the welfare society.

The centre works to strengthen the dissemination of history and cultural heritage towards children and young people in schools, day care, museums and experience centres.
